Dragonair adds Guangzhou to Network through Codeshare Agreement

Travel News Asia 24 November 2003

Guangzhou has become the 20th China mainland destination in Dragonair's network following the signing of a codeshare agreement with China Southern Airlines today. The agreement covers two flights a day between Hong Kong and Guangzhou and comes into effect on December 1. The airline also plans to establish an office in the Guangdong provincial capital as part of its business development plans in the Pearl River Delta.

"We are very pleased to announce this codeshare agreement with China Southern Airlines, which will allow us to add this major business hub in southern China to our network," said Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui. "This is our first codeshare deal with a mainland airline, and Guangzhou will become our 20th year-round destination there, strengthening our mainland access further."

The codeshare flights will primarily provide convenient connections for passengers traveling between the Pearl River Delta and Taiwan through the Hong Kong hub.

Dragonair's "KA" code will be added to two Airbus A320/Boeing 757 flights each day operated by China Southern between the two cities.

The flight schedule for the codeshare services is:


From Hong Kong to Guangzhou
